It has taken two months and one week to write 70,000 plus words but I am happy with how the first draft played out. I know the parts I want to cut, tweak and leave so hopefully that will assist me with the editing process. There are also some name changes I will make to part characters as they clash with others. Does anyone else realise that half way through writing? Or do you have names planned out in advance? May help me in future projects 🙂
I will take the next few days or more off from the story and allow it to marinate. So once I come back to it, I will have chance to recap and regroup from the last so many days and see it with fresh eyes.
I will take the break to concentrate on reading (many books I have ignored and can’t wait to get lost in them), may get back on track with the blog posts and also relax. Oh, and I have also been completing Yoga workouts that I plan to getting to an intermediate stage on.
I plan to have the editing parts completed by the end of this month and have a date set by then. Looking at the end of March. There may also be an opportunity to get a few advanced copies out there for those who may be interested 🙂
In the meantime I look forward to checking out new music, new films and new material and stories and reading the blogs that I have ignored recently. *Holds head in shame*
I am happy with the outcome of the first draft and am invigorated by the feeling that I get to revisit these characters along with another two books to follow them. I will be worried how I will feel when the whole story concludes, until then I can look forward to meeting them again.
Thank you for reading, the continued support and I look forward to hearing your comments about the name question I threw in earlier. Also, how do you feel when the story you have been working hard on (oops, that sounds giggle worthy) for awhile comes to an end? If you fancy an in depth discussion you can always find me on Twitter @nobodyetall feel free to tweet or DM me 🙂
Talk soon 🙂
